This benchmark has really grown on me over the last few weeks and not just for its ability to test solid state drives. While AS SSD might have been designed for SSDs, it has proved itself capable of being used to test many other products such as NAS, DAS and external drives as well.

AS SSD has two tests, the standard SSD test and the Copy Benchmark which we are using to test with today that tests how fast a drive can copy a set file, allowing us to replicate the results.


Here we see that the SimpleTOUGH is able to copy files right around 15MB/s under real world conditions.
